As a Vimeo PRO or Business member, you can invite team members to your account to help upload and manage your videos and collections. PRO members can add up to 3 team members to their account, and Vimeo Business members can add up to 10.
Team member types
There are two permission types for team members: uploaders and managers. Both types will need to make a Vimeo account in order to be able to join a team.
Uploaders can only upload videos to your account. On their upload page, they will be able to toggle between uploading videos to their own account and uploading videos to your account. Uploaders will only be able to edit the title and description of the video while it is being uploaded to your account. Any videos an uploader adds to your account will have the privacy setting Only Me, which means the uploader will not be able to see the video on Vimeo. As the account owner, you can change the video's privacy setting after upload.
At this time, team members with uploader permission can only upload directly to Vimeo. Any account added to a team as an uploader will not be able to upload videos via the app or third-party programs.
Managers can access your account to help you upload and manage your videos and collections. In their profile picture menu, they will see the option to switch between your account and their own. Managers will not be able to access your account credentials or payment information, and they do not have the ability to delete videos or send messages on your behalf.
Managers have access to all other account features, including (but not limited to):
- Purchasing Vimeo On Demand titles
- Setting up Vimeo On Demand titles for sale, including entering a PayPal email address to receive payment for sales
- Creating, managing, and deleting collections
- Changing the privacy settings of your videos
Adding a team member to your account
To add a team member, click the "Manage Team" tab in your Account Settings. You’ll see all your existing team members on this page (by default, it’s just you listed there). Click the "+ Add team member" link on the right side of the page, and a module will pop up. You’ll need to enter your team member’s email address, then select Uploader or Manager as the role from the dropdown menu. You have the option to write a note that will be included in the invitation email. Pro tip: enter the email address associated with their existing Vimeo account if they have one!
After you send the invite, the team member will appear in your team list with a “Joined” status of “Pending.” When the team member accepts the invitation to join your team, the “Joined” status will change to the date they accepted access to your account. If the person you’ve added still hasn’t responded to your invite, you can send them a reminder. Hover over the “Pending” status and click the “Send reminder” link that appears.
Any person you invite to be an Uploader to or Manager of your account will need to log into their Vimeo account or create a Vimeo account (if they don't have one) before they can accept your invitation. Make sure the email address you invite matches the email address your team member uses to create an account.
If your team member is having trouble receiving the invite email, you can send them a direct invite URL. To find the URL, go to the Manage Team tab, and click on “Copy invite link.” Please note that this link is unique to each individual team member, so it can’t be used to invite others to the account. Once a team member accepts the invitation, the “Copy invite link” option will not appear any longer.
Removing a team member from your account
You can revoke a team member’s access to your Vimeo account at any time by click the gray “X” at the end of the member’s row on the Manage Team page.
At this time, team member functionality is only available on Vimeo.com, not in our mobile app.
